Description

        We were in school when green revolution transformed our agriculture. We were witness to village level and block level institutions spearheading the transformation both on agricultural as well as educational front. We were upbeat then and fruitfully used these functional existed even those days at the village level or Samiti / taluk level. But it was with in tolerable limits. When we entered the Government service, we had around us role models like Late S.R. Sankaran and a political system, relatively non – interfering and fairly encouraging honest civil servants. To our misfortune, collapse started before our eyes and there seems to be no end to this fall.

                 We have been witnessing political executive consciously weakening all the democratic institutions, in a planned manner. Every time there is a change of guard at the political level, there is more and more suffocation and a feeling of further let down. Family dynasties with no service motto, interested only in power and money have come to rule. They have been strengthening only their families at the cost of democratic institutions. Democracy has become a farse. Corruption has reached its zenith. Youth started aping wrong role models blindly wasting their time and energies, despite history’s warnings. Education and health became complete commercial commodities in a relatively short period.

                 Under these circumstances, I thought it fit to pen down some of the concerns afflicting polity, governance, collapse of institutions, worsening corruption in public life making the so called democracy dysfunctional. Wrong course or direction in which our policies are shaping and influencing outcomes in few sectors is also flagged based on the limited knowledge I acquired in these sectors.

                On the whole, the idea is to flag these issues to common people and work out an agenda for transformative politics to reverse the present course of governance back to democratic ways.
